With multiple conferences across Australia, Supanova Pop Culture Expo, since 2000, is where the adoring public comes face to face with Supa-Star celebrities and the creative talent that inspire their imaginary worlds under one big roof.
Gathered from and surrounded by the wonderful worlds of comic books, animation/cartoons, science-fiction, pulp TV/movies, toys, console gaming, trading cards, fantasy, entertainment technology, books, internet sites, and fan-clubs, the result is an amazing atmosphere tailor made for expressing your inner geek and where getting into cosplay (cos-tume role-play) is the obvious thing to do!
There are two competitions held at Supanova: the event contest and The Madman National Cosplay Championships.
It runs on both Saturday and Sunday. New cosplayers and veterans alike take to the stage to strut their stuff and show off their masterpieces, from still poses to hilarious skits. This competition is open for all individual and group cosplayers.
- The Madman National Cosplay Championships
Entries for costumes are from Japanese anime, manga, tokusatsu and video games. This contest is a celebration of Japanese anime and cosplay culture. Open to Australian residents only.
